Hi folks, I am looking for some green cloth covered speaker wire (tinsel type) to make my own cord. Radio Daze sells the brown color which I have used in the past, but they do not have green.
One particular cord that I want to make will need pins on both ends which is not so common. Phoneco sells one that would be usable, but first I will see if the wire alone is available.

Thanks

Russ

I just got some wire from Tube Depot and was very pleased. One of the things I liked having used several other cloth covered wire is that the cloth does not fray when you strip the ends. Very easy to work with. You can buy single colors and in small quantities at very cheap shipping rates. They also have it in 18 ga.

Tinsel wire is much more flexible than those.

This vendor claims to have a very flexible headphone cord in many colors. I assume these are 3 conductor. Ad doesn't say tinsel wound, doesn't say what material, but the price may be low enough to take a chance?

It is real tinsel cord, green appears to be available.
